Self Portrait – The Room
Self-Promotion Illustration - Series
Fangyu Ma, Atlanta, GA
Illustrator: Fangyu Ma
This composition is based on my childhood experience and the thoughts triggered by it. The trauma and experience of being sexually harassed by a teacher in my childhood has resulted in my continued emotional distress, it is one of my motivations to paint. Through my illustrations in The Room, I want to communicate with viewers who have had the same experience, to trigger empathy, to achieve self-healing and to help others.
